There were times in Saturday's game against Towson when No. 11 Loyola threatened to blow away its crosstown rival. Then there were the final five minutes, when the Greyhounds all but imploded. Greyhounds goalie Jake Hagelin (Boys' Latin) stopped a desperation one-hopper by Matt Lamon (St. Mary's) as time expired, however, and host Loyola held on for a 7-6 win that injected more than a little anxiety into the announced 2,412 at brand-new Ridley Athletic Complex. "You never take a win in Division I for granted.

Turnover in the midfield is bad, and Loyola Maryland is finding that out this offseason. The Greyhounds, an aggressive team that has thrived when its short-stick defensive midfielders can run and turn defense into offense, are losing two starting short-stick defensive midfielders to graduation. Pat Laconi led all non-long-pole players in caused turnovers with 34, scooped up 31 ground balls and recorded 11 goals and three assists. His linemate, Kyle Duffy, wasn't as prolific in manufacturing points (1 G, 2 A)

Erik Etherly had 12 points and seven rebounds to lead visiting Loyola to a 51-41 men's basketball victory over Manhattan in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game Friday night at Draddy Gymnasium. Anthony Winbush added nine points and eight rebounds for the Greyhounds (15-6, 7-2 MAAC), who have won three in a row and six of seven. Emmy Andujar came off the bench to score 12 points and grab 16 rebounds for the Jaspers (5-14, 3-6), who have lost three in a row and nine of 11. Loyola slowly built a lead as both teams struggled to score early in the opening half.

The bottom of Gilman's lineup helped the Greyhounds reach the top of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference on Thursday. Gilman's No. 2 doubles team of Jay Barrett and Will Faison rallied to win a tiebreaker that let the Greyhounds tie host Mount St. Joseph in the conference's title match. The only match left was at No. 3 singles where Galen Rende of Gilman was finishing off his 6-1, 4-6, 6-1 victory over Tristan Boustany. That completed Gilman's come-from-behind 3-2 victory over the Gaels in the A Conference championship.

For Loyola, only two positive developments came out of its game against Manhattan last night.First, the Greyhounds won't have to face Manhattan in the quarterfinals of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament. And second, B.J. Pendleton scored the 1,000th point of his career.The Greyhounds were pounded by the defending champions of the MAAC, as Manhattan built a 14-point lead at the half and rolled to an 84-71 victory at Reitz Arena.Manhattan (16-9, 9-4) is most likely headed to the No. 2 seed for the MAAC tournament, next weekend in Albany, N.Y.

The Loyola men's basketball team has played some great games as they've risen to the top of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference standings. Sunday's game at Reitz Arena will not be regarded as one of them. Down by just four at the half, the Greyhounds (19-6, 12-3) were out-rebounded, out-hustled and out-everything-elsed in a MAAC loss to Fairfield (15-10, 10-4) 68-51. Erik Etherly and Robert Olson lead the Greyhounds with 17 points apiece. Rakim Sanders led a very balanced Fairfield team with 13 points.

Spurred by Zach Thornton, sixth-ranked Loyola scored early and often as it rolled to a 21-5 victory at UMBC last night.Thornton, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound senior midfielder, scored three of the game's first four goals, firing bullets from in close. UMBC goalie Chris Brown had almost no chance against any of them.The Greyhounds (8-1) next play at home Tuesday against No. 4 Syracuse. The next game for UMBC (4-6) is at home against Towson State next Saturday.Thornton opened the night's scoring unassisted when he dodged past two defenders and fired one over Brown's right shoulder 2:49 into the game.

Seven years ago, when Nichole Schiro had already wowed upperclassmen on her high school team by scoring goals at will, her soccer coach at Okemos (Mich.) High sat her down in his office. Rob Antcliff wanted to know what his young star wanted to accomplish in her career. Naturally, the modest freshman listed the basics — play well, help the team win, maybe try to play in college. Then she blurted out something that still sticks out to Antcliff. "Well, I like to break records," Schiro said.

These teams have met just once before, with Albany routing Loyola Maryland, 19-10, in the first round of the 2007 NCAA tournament. The Greyhounds are 9-0 at home this season and 4-3 at home in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Albany (11-5) went 4-5 through the nonconference portion of its schedule, but righted the ship by buzzing through the America East and claiming the league tournament for the second straight year. The Great Danes are 1-4 against teams that qualified for the NCAA tournament.

One minute and 46 seconds were left in the game when Albany delivered another magic moment. Attackman Miles Thompson threw a quick pass to younger brother Lyle, who hurled a pass across the crease to cousin Ty Thompson, who flicked in a goal. And then there was one final trick: Unseeded Albany made No. 3 seed Loyola Maryland disappear from the NCAA Division I lacrosse tournament. The Thompson trio accounted for 11 goals and seven assists, and getting 13 saves from goalie Blaze Riorden, the Great Danes upset Loyola, 13-6, in the first round of tournament play Saturday at Ridley Athletic Complex.

In a game in which neither team made many mistakes, an attempt to flip the ball to Calvert Hall junior attackman Timmy Kelly in overtime afforded Gilman senior defensemen Chase Campbell the opportunity he needed to force a turnover. About 30 seconds after Campbell checked the ball from Kelly's stick, the ill-advised exchange came back to haunt the No. 5 Cardinals when Gilman senior Tyler Ruhl converted a perfect feed from fellow attackman Andy Matthews to give the No. 6 Greyhounds an 11-10 victory in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference quarterfinal Friday afternoon in Roland Park.

It will be interesting to see how Loyola Maryland defends Albany this weekend in their NCAA men's lacrosse tournament first-round game and how that might change the Greyhounds offense. The Great Danes have the Thompson trio -- attackmen Miles (74 goals, 34 assists) and younger brother Lyle (45, 69) as well as cousin Ty (36, 12), also an attackman. Albany has outscored the opposition 261-184 this season and has converted on 32 of 62 extra-man opportunities. Loyola likes to run, that sometimes that style of play also produces turnovers.

In a move that will surprise no one, Loyola Maryland defenseman Joe Fletcher has spent a considerable amount of time watching film of Albany attackman Lyle Thompson, and the Greyhounds senior knows that the tape doesn't lie. He also knows that the tape isn't entirely truthful. It can't capture the full scope of trying to shadow the Great Danes junior, who has already tied UMBC attackman Steve Marohl's single-season NCAA record of 114 points. “That's what makes him, him,” Fletcher said Wednesday afternoon.

The 18-team field for the NCAA tournament was announced Sunday night, and Loyola was the highest-seeded team from the state of Maryland, earning the No. 3 slot. The Greyhounds (15-1), who earned an automatic berth by winning the Patriot League tournament and won the 2012 national championship, will host Albany (11-5) on Saturday at 12 p.m. at Ridley Athletic Complex. Here is a sampling of Toomey's reaction just minutes after the bracket was unveiled. On getting the No. 3 seed and a home game: That was the goal from Day 1, to advance to the first round and have a home game.

If this was a statement game, then No. 1 Loyola Maryland left a great impression on No. 6 Johns Hopkins and the rest of the college lacrosse world. The Greyhounds trailed early, rallied in the middle and then put away the Blue Jays down the stretch in a 13-10 win before an announced sellout crowd of 6,000 at Ridley Athletic Complex. Although they had won 14 straight after a 14-13 season-opening overtime loss to Virginia, few knew whether the Greyhounds deserved their No. 1 ranking because they had not played a Top 10 team since beating then-No.
